I have had a blog going for the last few years over at TheDeenBros.com and really enjoy keeping everybody in the loop of what’s going on in and around our family. It’s also a great place to spread the word on different non- profit events we have going on and this week is a doozy of a program.
Backstory; I was asked by Mary Jane Crouch, the director of America’s Second Harvest Food Bank here in Savannah, about serving on the local board after we partnered with Smithfield for a protein donation here at home and I jumped at the chance. In the last four years I have seen things that will break your heart but have also been a part of some work that will not only make it whole again but fill it up with joy. In this big world of ours I have found a spot where I know I can have an effect on a person’s life that may possibly trickle down into the lives of folks that are yet to be born. It’s truly one of my favorite things.
Now, y’all know I love to share so I’m not keeping this feeling to myself.
You can do good things with only one text. One text message from you today will provide 40 meals to someone in need.
1 text. $10. 40 meals.
Please join us as we kick of the holiday season with a gift that will not only make a difference today but could echo through a family’s entire history.
Text “hungry” to 50555 and help us in our fight against hunger.
The feeling you get in return is free.
Thank you from our family, Mary Jane, Second Harvest and the thousand’s of people will will get a meal because of your generosity.
Until next week, do good things

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition.
Blessings and Happy Easter!!
